A man walks back into the past...

Advantages: Compact
Disadvantages: poor volume

I'm rather sad it's all over for the traditional tape cassette player, production shut down on October 25th 2010. They were by far the most durable music players, especially for running and exercise, and didn't burn up the batteries like portable CD playe ...

Tesco Boombox.....

Advantages: The price, easy to use, finds most radio stations, looks stylish
Disadvantages: If the volume is at the maximum then the sound gets a little distorted

When it comes to music, I love it, I am so much more a music person as opposed to a TV person and I could live without the TV as opposed to music. If I am not listening to a CD then I can always be found with a radio station on, whether this be a local st ...

Cheap standard CD player

Advantages: Operates as a regular CD player
Disadvantages: Tacky-looking, poor sound quality
